1. YOu can download an application for processing SHN's into Waves via googling for 'shn converters' there are many simple ways. I have a 'drag and drop' folder which processes them and puts them back into the correct folder before I import to I-tunes...anyway..I mention this becuase there is a problem with the SHN of the SCARLET> FIRE. Both cut out at 4 mins and 6 mins respectively. So there is a problem with the code in those files I suppose.
2. To the perosn who asked ablout 'other files types', if you scroll down you will see '_vbr.mp3' and there are two other types of files for this show, 64kbit and ogg., ie 1,1,1,2,2,2, etc...
On to the show...it blisters! It cranks and it rocks the romper room kahs-bah!! The Scarlet FIRE is insane! Great audience tape with sbd qualities in its mix. Vocals are perfect. Bass is high-end and Bobby is vocalized nicely.
Since I have noticed the problem with the scarlet>fire on the shn's I have downloaded the MP3's and have listened fastidiously for imperfection and have not found agregious or even noteworthy sloppyness- not that I would point it out anyway to be honest. But to those of you who seek perfect audience tapes, this one is for you. The 'Jam' into 'NFA' is also incredible. I needed 3 CD's to burn this show and each is over an hour...great performance just a few miles from my home town.
(This place is being torn down sometime in the next year or so. I see it when in New Haven and it seems that it is being taken apart.)
I did not see my first show until 7 years later, infact I was probably spitting up kool-aide and playing "kiss" when this show was happening, however, it is wonderful to have htis copy available to us now! This is Americana- it is almost 'Rockafallian' and an institution of Americana. These shows are inportant relics of our day and important stories to pass on to the future youth of America. Let Freedom ring-Crank it up great show! Pas it on!
Subject: Great show
As for the music, despite considerable sloppiness in the 2nd set, this is a great show. Disc 3 is an example of exactly why I used to go see the Grateful Dead. Great transition jam out of drums into a long, jammed-out and even somewhat spacey Not Fade Away.
The Black Peter from this show is the longest ever, and probably the slowest. That can be seen as either good or bad, but to me, this song is a dirge and was meant to be played like one. I find it soulful. Jerry even solos over the verse an extra time in the middle of the tune.
There's a lot to be said for the first set, too, but I won't go into details. This is not a show to use to impress your newbie friends, but if you love to hear the Grateful Dead get into some jamming, it's well worth the download.
